Watch out Overwatch, there’s a new contender in town with a lot of player support. Today, Playerunknown’s Battlegrounds is finally entering version 1.0, there is another reason for game creators to celebrate. According to game developer PUBG Corp., their highly successful game now has 30 million players across both PC and Xbox One.
Sales of the game have accelerated quickly because just last month, the company had announced that the game had reached 20 million sold milestone. For a game to get an additional 10 million users is no doubt a great milestone. It definitely helps that the launch on Xbox One has given the game a significant boost to its user base.
Reaching these numbers in less than a year puts PUBG as one of the very few and exclusive games. It’s on par with Blizzard’s multiplayer shooter Overwatch, which hit 30 million players around the world after 11 months being on sale. Destiny, the original one that is, managed to get 20 million players after about eight months of being released. Considering that PUBG doesn’t have backing from a major publisher, reaching the 30 million milestone is incredible impressive. The game has gained a lot of momentum and continues to.
